Maddie Michalik

Maddie Michalik is the senior editor at the Toy Insider, where she reports on news, trends, and writes weekly product reviews. She travels to TV stations throughout the U.S. and Canada to show off her favorite products on TV! Maddie is also the editor-in-chief of leading trade magazine The Toy Book and weekly e-newsletter Toy Report, keeping the toy industry up to date with the latest happenings. Her love for consuming media is surpassed only by her love creating it, and she truly believes that the world would be a better place if everyone just played with a toy for 15 minutes a day. You can often find her rereading the Harry Potter series with a cup of coffee in her hand and patiently waiting for a The Lego Movie threequel to come out.
